New York Jets @ New England Patriots – 1pm – CBS
This game may not be broadcast nationwide, but it’s the last NFL Sunday, and this game matters. I want to explain why, and get to my free NFL bet tip for today below.
Typically this time of year half of the teams are ready to hang it up in the NFL. There is nothing different in this spot, as the Jets have nothing to play for. New England on the other hand, has a shot to finish as the 2nd seed in the AFC and earn a first round bye.
As huge as this is, and as much history is going on in this spot, the free bet should just be pile all of your savings on the Pats moneyline, (only -800 right now ;). However, the joy of spreads is what makes Sundays such a headache.
Now don’t get me wrong, I think the Jets are a trainwreck, but Sam Darnold just may be getting comfortable enough to be an NFL quarterback. His last 3 games against Buffalo, Houston, and Green Bay, he has completed over 65% of his throws, and has only one interception to six TD’s. The Jets also came up short by just one score in the past 2 weeks, so they are still competing.
New England can do no wrong, marching into Buffalo last week and having their way on the ground. James White, Sony Michel, Rex Burkhead…even Cordarrelle Patterson is racking up yards. Being able to grind it out puts a little less pressure on Tom Brady. That pressure might be relieved a bit more now that Morris Claiborne is also ruled out for the Jets today.
This free NFL bet tip totally depends on the half point. If you can find the Jets getting 14.5 points today, hop on. If its 14 or less, forget about it. I think the game will be close enough, and the Jets will cover.
